One Act Play Season – Slut & The Adam/Eve Protocol
Season: 29-30 June 2018
Cast: Casey Bohan, Reschelle O’Connor, Julia Lambert, Malaynee Hayden and Jaclyn Lombardo.
This June, Powderkeg Players presents two one act plays for two nights only.
Patricia Cornelius’s Slut is an edgy, raw and provocative play that examines the part women play in slut-shaming. Slut follows the central character, Lolita, and a chorus of young women who watch her rise and final devastating fall. Directed by the award winning Natasha Boyd, Slut will tour Victoria as part of the One Act Play Festival circuit.
Second feature is the premier of The Adam/Eve Protocol, written and directed by longtime Powderkeg friend Donna Prince. Adam/Eve explores the human condition of relevance in the context of an uncertain future.
Season: 5-20 October 2018
Written by: David Williamson
Directed by: Lee Cook
A Conversation – the second play in Williamson’s Jack Manning trilogy – explores the use of community conferencing, a process where an offender and his victim discuss the perpetrator’s actions and attempt to find a resolution.
Scott is imprisoned for the rape and murder of a young woman and his struggling single mother Coral arranges a meeting with the victim’s upper-class parents and the prison psychologist who counselled her son. Coral asks Jack Manning to mediate but things gets off to a bumpy start when it’s revealed she may have an ulterior motive.
An amateur production by arrangement with Origin Theatrical on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
